CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

Just as he was hoisting that baby up, we get introduced to the chargers and chiefs. Real classy American television, he only achieved something that hasn't been done in forever.

Re: CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

I thought that was really rude too. No signoff from the announcers, no slow-mo montage of the match, he didn't even hold it for more than a sec or two before it went to black. WTH?

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Re: CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

You could tell that Mcatee rushed Rafa's interview because he knew he had a minute left. Just no class whatsoever, who cares about a football game in the first week of the season.

Re: CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

Is this a surprise? Their presentations are always shoddy and lazy and offputting - they barely even bothered to put Nadal's amazing achievement here in any sort of context at all.

Nope, take your photos and fuck off, we have adverts to show and then poker.

Re: CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

you are right, they don't even have the decency to finish the match on regular television so that american slobs get to watch reruns of year old episodes.

Tennis is a second tier sport in the States, get used to it.

Re: CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

Agreed. Horrible. Bill Macatee also cut Rafa off a bit in order to get him to hoist the trophy before they cut.

Re: CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

Terrible, but I'm not surprised. The scheduling for this match was way, way off, and no way would they let it interfere with football.

I was contemplating the stream if they were going to push this to ESPN Classic around 10:15. I agree with you Mech that people here regard it as a second tier sport, but it's the Kansas City Chiefs lol. Only people watching that are gamblers and bar drunks.

Re: CBS/ESPN Ruins another ceremony

Yeah... I mean c'mon.. I like football, but the darn game hadn't even started yet. I don't know ESPN couldn't join the game a little late at least.

It's as shame tennis gets no respect in the US..

Nole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very tacky ESPN.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.
